Istiklal Street

İstiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue) is the heart of Beyoğlu, the more modern district of Istanbul built during the 19th century. The city's most popular strolling, shopping and snacking street, now reserved for pedestrians, is lined with boutiques, cafes, consulates, restaurants, galleries, cinemas and banks, with residential apartments above. When 19th-century travelers spoke of Constantinople (Istanbul) as the Paris of the East, they were thinking of the Grande Rue de Péra (İstiklal Caddesi) and its half-European, half-Asian culture. The avenue begins at Taksim Square, the hub of modern Istanbul. Nostalgic İstiklal Caddesi tramway cars rattle and clank along Istiklal Caddesi from Taksim Square to Tünel Square just as they did in the 19th-century heyday of this Europeanized corner of the Ottoman sultan's domains.
